Tiger Woods To Speak at Barack Obama's Inaguration Party Thingy
As most golf fans know, Tiger Woods avoids controversy like the Pope avoids a Trojan condom. He doesn't need it, he doesn't want it, and most of all, he doesn't want to taint his image.
This Sunday, however, Tiger is planning to speak at the Barack Obama Pre-Inauguration Party, which is sure to be a hooooooooooooooooooot.
Woods posted a short statement on his Web site to say he would speak at "We Are One," a concert and celebration that will be broadcast live on HBO and feature entertainers such as Beyonce, U2, Stevie Wonder and Garth Brooks, along with appearances by Denzel Washington and Martin Luther King III.
Give me a dartboard with anyone famous you've ever heard of, and I'm not sure I could have come up with a more random group than Tiger, Beyonce, Garth Brooks and Martin Luther King III. Maybe Cher? Joe the Plumber? Beyonce? Oh, she's on the list. My bad.
Anyway, pretty cool that Mr. Woods is taking off his politically correct sunglasses for a short stint to show Barack he's behind him.
